San Francisco April 2023 Events

Enjoy a Beautiful Spring Month in San Fran!

Average temperature low and high: 50° - 63°
April is a great time to visit San Francisco as Spring is in full bloom, and the weather is mild. Rain isn't likely, and visitation during this month means that you still made it before the summer fog. Further, with April being between spring break and summer vacation, it is a great time to enjoy San Francisco tourist attractions without lots of crowds. If you're looking to get outside to enjoy the weather, consider visiting a botanical garden or going for a peaceful scenic boat ride along Stow Lake. Some events may be postponed or different this year due to COVID-19, we will do our best to update this page with any new information.
Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race

Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race

Act like a kid again and ride your Big Wheel down one of the curviest streets in San Francisco.  The event, which will be held on Easter Sunday, always leads to hilarity as adults ride, tumble, and crash their way down the hill on undersized tricycles, for no reason other than finding the joy in life.  Whether you choose to ride or watch, you're guaranteed a good time.  Get more information and register at their official website.
